Twins 7, Reds 5: A pitcher’s best friend

Maeda wasn’t sharp but his offense backed him up. | Sam Greene via Imagn Content Services, LLC The Twins used 3-run home runs by Mitch Garver and Jorge Polanco to beat the Reds. It was a pretty rough evening for Kenta Maeda, as he allowed 3 home runs today. The first two were solo shots by Eugenio Suarez and Tucker Barnhardt who went back-to-back in the 3rd inning. Jesse Winker doubled home the third run of that inning to make it a 3-1 game. The Twins bounced back with a Mitch Garver 3-run homer in the 5th inning to give them a 4-3 lead. That was short lived,...

Twins 7, White Sox 2: Well that was weird

Jorge Polanco continued to rake as the Twins defeated the White Sox. | Matt Marton-USA TODAY Sports The Twins earned a split against White Sox In an alternate reality, this victory would have been par for the course. The Minnesota Twins enjoyed a competent start from a starting pitcher, followed by four innings of competent relief. Along the way, the Twins’ offense put together a couple of decent innings en route to seven total runs. Ultimately, the squad cruised to a relatively easy victory. Of course, this was the exception, and clearly not the rule in 2021. But the...

Coming in clutch—how this Twins squad compares to others in late-game situations

Coming in clutch—how this Twins squad compares to others in late-game situations

Photo by Adam Bettcher/ Spoiler Alert: It isn’t great, but not as bad as you might think Just before the All-Star break, Ben Rortvedt & Jorge Polanco delivered two of the most clutch, late-inning hits that Twins’ bats have provided all season. For the most part, however, fans have bemoaned this team’s inability to perform “in the clutch”. Of course, defining the concept of “clutch” isn’t exactly a simple task. The parameters that define the term can be slippery. For my purposes here, I’ll be using the Baseball Reference definition of “Late/Close”...
